Our desire for patio pleasures doesn't fade with the coming of fall. In fact, Denver loves its cool-weather patios: The opportunity to don hats and scarves while wrapping our beers in mittened hands reminds us of mountain nights around a fire. But while we love the cool, open air, it's helpful to find a patio that shelters us from the elements. That's not solely why my friends and I love Cap City Tavern, but it's one of the few places where you can find a heated, covered patio with a huge TV.
